Building backlinks is one of the best ways to improve your search engine rankings.
But how do you find the websites that will deliver quality backlinks?
If you’re blindly searching the web for quality sites, it can take forever to find them, not to mention, it can be exhausting.
Here are 2 cool tips that I use to help with finding quality websites for building backlinks that will make locating them a lot easier 😉
1. Use Queries Like These to find linkable sites
The easiest way to find linkable sites is to enter effective queries into the search engines like these:
- site:.com “post a comment” -“comments closed” -“you must be logged in” “Your Keyword”
- site:.org “post a comment” -“comments closed” -“you must be logged in” “Your Keyword”
- site:.net “post a comment” -“comments closed” -“you must be logged in” “Your Keyword”
What these commands are doing is helping you find a .com, .org or .net site that has the words ‘post a comment’ on the page and does not have the words ‘comments closed or ‘you must be logged in. That’s what the ‘-‘ represents.
You can use these commands for any .suffix you wish. You can also get creative and use the ‘-‘ to eliminate anything you wish or add a term.
Since guest posting on blogs can also mean more quality backlinks, here’s how you might find blogs that accept guest posts:
- yourkeywords + “guest post”
- yourkeywords + “guest blog”
- yourkeywords + “guest article”
2. Install SEO Quake
SEO Quake is a free Firefox plugin that posts search engine information for sites that come up for your search engine listing.
The installation is easy and quick. Simply click on the ‘Add to Firefox’ link to download SEO Quake to Firefox. Of course you must be using Firefox which is a web browser I highly recommend, it’s much more secure, however there is also an SEO Quake for Internet Explorer as well.
Once installed, you’re Google displays will resemble this display:
As you can see, with SEO Quake you’ll start getting lots of juicy web page information that includes things like:
- Google pagerank
- Yahoo Google and Bing Links information
- Alexa ranking
- The age of the website
- Whois information
All very handy information for finding quality sites to comment on or submit guest posts to.
Hopefully that will speed things up for you in getting backlinks to your blog or website
